Ottawa Chiropractor : Dr. Yurij Chewpa,
Chiropractic saved Dr. Yurij’s university hockey career and changed the course of his life.
Dr. Chewpa was born and raised in Ottawa and did his undergraduate studies in Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo. An avid hockey player, Dr. Yurij was injured while playing in a varsity game with the Waterloo Warriors. The team chiropractor saw him and had him back on the ice quickly and stronger than ever. Even though Yurij’s academic interests were in human science and health care, he had never considered Chiropractic as a career. After this experience he realized that Chiropractic was the right choice for him.
Dr. Chewpa graduated cum laude from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto in 1986 and moved back to Ottawa to start a practice while also completing a 3 year post graduate specialty program in Sports Sciences. In 1990, he received his fellowship designation from the College of Chiropractic Sports Sciences (F.C.C.S.S. (c)).

Dr. Chewpa met his wife, Dr. Marie Geschwandtner, at Chiropractic College and they have two beautiful boys. They are all very active in sports and the boys currently attend a sports academy where they are involved in competitive alpine ski racing. Dr. Yurij loves to be outdoors (especially in the mountains) fly-fishing, hiking, skiing, cycling, running. He loves to read books on leadership and is intrigued by God’s power to heal.
In his 24 years of practice in helping families achieve optimal health, the biggest mistake he sees people making is waiting too long to seek out chiropractic care. Don’t make this mistake. Give the office a call or email Dr. Yurij using the link below and arrange a time to explore your options.
